  • I have placed several links for you if you don't mind reading...
    Pagan/Paganism is an umbrella term used for those whom do not follow the more mainstream religions....Wicca is one of many Pagan religions ... it is as diverse as it's practicers are... some believe in many Gods some believe in a Father and Mother God (balance) and there are some whom only follow a Goddess and those as with all of the Gods are of different Phathons of the followers choice... Some Wiccans practice Witchcraft and some do not... also not ALL Pagans are Wiccans...

  • I am an Eclectic Pagan Witch. I was once Wiccan. Please feel free to PM if any of the links that gmasboy provided for you are not clear or if you have more questions. I'd be happy to help. (we do not believe in conversion so no need to worry about pressure. lol)
